—-National Soccer Team Coach, Patrice Beaumelle, says he is happy with Chipolopolo midfielder, Nathan Sinkala’s move to Swiss league side, Grasshopper Club Zurich (GCZ).
Yesterday, Sinkala, a Congolese side TP Mazembe midfielder, signed a six month loan move to Grasshopper following a similar spell at French side, Sochaux.
Beaumelle said Grasshopper is a good side which Sinkala has signed with and hoped that the Chipolopolo diminutive midfielder will cope with the style of play.
Grasshoppers were the 2013/2014 Swiss league runners-up, which means that Sinkala will make his UEFA Champions League debut when Grasshopper starts their campaign during the weekend of July 22-23.
ZANIS Sports reports that this is according to a release posted on the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) website today.
And Beaumelle has expressed happiness with midfielder, Fwayo Tembo, who has joined Turkish outfit, Konyaspor on a two-year deal.
The Chipolopolo trainer said Tembo, who has been club less for over a year, needed to fight for a place at his club before he could be recalled to the national team.
He has since advised Tembo to stay at his new club, train, play competitively and concentrate on his performance with the club.
Meanwhile, Beaumelle has further expressed happiness with the local Zambian players who have joined foreign clubs during the July transfer window.
The Zambian players, who have joined foreign clubs during the June/July transfer window, are Bonwell Mwape and Bruce Musakanya who have joined Amazulu of South Africa, while Evans Kangwa has joined Hapoel Ra’anana of Israel.
Others are Christopher Katongo and Evans Musonda who have both joined Wits University of South Africa and Felix Katongo who has joined Al Ittihad of Egypt.
